Apps and Pricing (Same as in past years)

Timetable Assistant Application - $200 +HST - yearly school license - This app aids the Timetabling process by taking extracted Master Schedule data and displaying it in a multitude of available reports which allow the user to 'see' the current state of the Master Schedule in a two-dimensional grid and analyze course placement by Semester/Block, course loads, simulated loads, courses by Department, courses by Pathway, courses by Teacher, courses by Room etc. No data entry required. The process of timetabling within your Master Schedule Builder is done the same as usual. The reports are also helpful in communication/discussions possibly with Department Heads etc. The app is very useful to Guidance and Administration throughout the school year.
